Where is the email link in Firefox ?


A person helped me change my browser from Internet Explorer 7 to FireFox. Now I cannot find the email link on FireFox. I right click in the upper toolbar & hit customize. Their is no email. When I hit customize, the icons shrink & I can see more icons on the upper toolbar. When I cancel out of customize, I can only see 2 of the icons & I cannot bring up any others. Does Firefox not use email or does it have to be G mail, ect. ? My email is dolls@xxxxxxx.xxx.

You can find "Email Link" in the Firefox menu and in the File menu if the menu bar is visible.

This is very simple. Click file in the mail menu and 'email link' is one of the options, right below 'save page as". I use it every day.
